First, I selected Google to be my search provider, not Bing. So why does a Bing page show up when I want to use FIrefox?

Secondly, why do items I don't want or no longer need appear in my 4 rows of tabs I can click on to access that website? This is frustrating, especially when I can't get rid of one I don't care for.

Also, making this like Microsoft, where it may take some time to actually ask for help almost makes me want to go back to them. I wanted more than they had.

When I got my Android phone, sync (from desktop to phone) worked nicely. My laptop was permanently damaged in a fire, and my latest backup of FF folders is two weeks old. (I'm guilty - I know!). Bookmarks still appear on my phone, including a few I added just hours before the fire. If I log into FF on the new desktop, will it pull all the bookmarks from the phone? Or will its brand new (and empty) bookmark file tell the phone to dump its bookmarks too?

In other words, who's in charge in a situation like this? The desktop or the phone?

I get an error message saying Firefox failed to connect to the server. At the top it says server not found. This happens several times an HOUR! It's drivig me crazy.

Sometimes the connection comes back after reloading page, sometimes takes 29 minutes. I'm tired of restarting router. Waiting seems the only way. I have a Dell laptop with AMD processor which is my fastest yet, no problems with that. I use very little space, there's plenty free. I have a talktalk router which is not covered by any furniture and is off the floor. There's only my sofa between my laptop and router.

As said in the title, other browsers and my phone work when FF doesn't. Sometimes other tabs work in the same window when one to more don't.

I have Midori which I have to use for sound as firefox has stopped playing sounds for some reason. I've tried several recommended fixes to no avail [any ideas on this would be gratefully received!

I really don't want to refresh FF as I am fearful of losing my bookmarks. I don't want another browser either for the same reason.

Any suggestions would be very welcome!

Subsequent prompts after the first prompt has a Don't allow prompts from this host again checkbox. I want to remove this checkbox and always allow prompts from the host. The prompt is generated using JavaScript confirm box. Is there a setting in firefox that can help me achieve this? I have tried playing around with notification settings but that hasn't helped me

First of this issue is atleast 4 years old. I found various different people having this problem. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432644 It should be a P5 not a P3. This official Mozilla article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-trusted-websites-your-allow-list-firefox-focus Does NOT work.

I am trying to add an expection to tracking protection but there is no such option, as descriped at Bugzilla. In the adress bar i removed the tracking protection for a website. But it was NOT added to the exception list. I dont allow 3rd party cookies and auto delete cookies when closing Fox. I think that is the reason why it's not working, if this is the case it's a bug.

What i actually tried to do, using dark-theme from duckduckgo permanently. Because as right now, i must change the theme every single time i reopen Firefox. This is Bull**** honestly. Even when i add duckduckgo as an addon, it does not save the dark theme!

When I download a PDF with certain radio buttons selected, if I open up the PDF in the Firefox PDF-viewer, a certain radio button value isn't displayed as being selected. When I open up the same PDF in any other browser or Adobe acrobat, the radio button is shown as being selected.

This issue is a major blocker for our project and we would love to get a resolution on this ASAP.

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.

I have an issue where I think someone hacked my computer and accessed internet sites causing financial problems for me. When I search the internet history 4 and 5 months back I get the same results for month 4 as I get for month 5. I know the location and times I am looking for but they are not showing up in the history (thinking that I did this and don;t remember). Ay idea how I can determine if access was established by my computer or why I am seeing duplicate information on different months?

Greetings,

I am a sysadmin working on an enterprise deployment of a Firefox extension, specifically this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/

It's a password manager called BitWarden.

I am deploying the extension using the official Firefox ADMX templates, so far I configured most settings correctly. When I am deploying the extension to my users (I am using Microsoft Intune), I need to provide an URL from where the extension will be downloaded. I found that URL by copying the link from the 'Add to Firefox' button from the https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ link.

I found the link to be: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/3843699

What I want to know is the following: 1. Will this link stay the same for all future BitWarden extension versions? 2. Is this something that changes when a new Bitwarden extension gets released or is this link static? 3. Is there perhaps a link which automatically redirects the download to the latest available version?

Some online guides say that a 'latest.xpi' string needs to be appended to the add-on's page (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ in this case), but I found that not to work. If I go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/latest.xpi, it throws an "page not found" error.

Thank you in advance!
